Proteomics Will Feature in Center of Excellence to Be Built in France

NEW YORK, June 10 (GenomeWeb News) - The Partnership for Structural Biology will build a European Center of Excellence for Structural Biology in Grenoble, France, the groups said this week.


The PSB includes the Grenoblecomponent of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, the Institut Laue-Langevin, and the Institut de Biologie Structurale.


Sixty scientists from these groups, as well as from the Instituteof Molecularand Structural Virology, will work at the center. The building will house infrastructure for high-throughput protein expression, characterization, and crystallization.


The PSB is involved with structural proteomics initiatives in Europe, including the BIOXHIT initiative.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
